Peninsula Community Library (PCL) is well on their way to that beautiful new building on the corner of Center Road and Island View Road. PCL Board President Heatherlyn Johnson Reamer says they plan to break ground this fall. Details forthcoming.
Last week, the library celebrated reaching $2 Million of their $2.5 Million fundraising goal with a lovely picnic where great fun was had by all. Of course, it was on the site of the new building.

Tom’s Food Markets, a major donor to the new library, provided a picnic of chicken, potato salad, slaw and cake, with hot dogs and chips for the kids. Happy music was provided by the Happy Time Banjos.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the Old Mission Peninsula.
